Treegap was nothing but trees and a spring. No one lived there, no one knew what "Treegap" was until two boys discovered it. Sick of all the rules at home, Mike and Joey, two eleven year olds decided to run away. Little did they know about what was coming.
The early vivid sunlight shone through the paned windows of the small brick home sparking like a diamond. Mike and Joey were ready. Their parents weren't awake so it was the perfect time for them to escape. They set off on their adventure with no maps, no food,water, or shelter.
"Where exactly are we going?" Mike asked his brother.
Joey looked up at the blazing sunlight, “Who knows?”
So the two boys continued on their journey. They did not know where they were, and
did not know if their parents were awake looking for them. Time was meaningless because Mike and Joey were determined to find a place to stay for the night. They could see some trees in the distance and those trees seemed to call them there. So they ran over to the trees and found a forest.
They explored the forest and no homes or sources of food so they started leaving but a
glistering sparkle caught Joey's eye.
"Hey look over there Mike!" Joey said to Mike. Mike looked over where Joey was
"Yeah, what is that?"
"Might as well go over there!" Joey replied to him walking over there cautiously.
What they reached was a spring. Mike and Joey both danced in joy! They found water!
After their long walk they found a water! The both dived into the water like puppies getting their dinner. They were so happy and excited. The whistling of birds filled the forest. The faint smell of pine trees also filled the forest. Only...

- Modris Eksteins presented a tour-de-force interpretation of the political, social and cultural climate of the early twentieth century. His sources were not merely the more traditional sources of the historian: political, military and economic accounts; rather, he drew from the rich, heady brew of art, music, dance, literature and philosophy as well. Eksteins examined ways in which life influenced, imitated, and even became art. Eksteins argues that life and art, as well as death, became so intermeshed as to be indistinguishable from one another.... [tags: Eksteins Rites Spring]

"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving is a classical myth that defies the conventional standards of a fairy tale.

The original text created by Irving was intended for the mature reader, a reader who could understand a sense of irony, had knowledge of history, and taste.... [tags: Legend Sleepy Hollow]

- The Power of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring In 1962, Rachel Carson published Silent Spring and was greeted with a roar of protest and approval. After years and years of controversy and skepticism surrounding its argument, Silent Spring was and still is recognized as a perceptive warning of things in progress and things to come. The book set the stage for the first real and effectual environmental movement. In 17 chapters, many of which can stand alone as essays, Carson develops a deceptively simple premise: the use and overuse of synthetic chemicals to control insect pests introduces these chemicals into the air, water, and soil and into the food chain where they poison animals and humans,...
